Amiga Soundtracker Sample Packs (ST-XX)




I share these samples to preserve the cultural influence the Commodore Amiga has had on electronic music. Amiga's audio chip (PAULA) and its music making software like (Ultimate) Soundtracker, ProTracker and NoiseTracker create a distinct sound. I always loved the "Amiga music" when playing computer games as kid. I hope these samples will inspire people to keep using the Amiga sound.

"ST-01 and most of the samples from ST-02 were made by Karsten Obarski, who invented the tracker with his Ultimate SoundTracker." The rest is not known to me. For more info about SoundTracker see http://membres.multimania.fr/fonzo/hotp1-b.html

I did not make this pack, here's what the collectors wrote:

Note: when using these samples in modern DAWs you need to pitch the samples down a couple of octaves.

Subject: Incorrect conversions!
While I appreciate that these classic sounds were archived, many have been improperly converted to WAV.

The original sounds were in 2 formats, raw PCM and 8SVX, which is a wrapper around raw PCM. Since all the files in the first pack ST-01 were raw, I'm assuming whoever converted these just processed them all in the same way thinking they were all raw.

Unfortunately, many that were in 8SVX format now have a scratchy milisecond of audio at the very beginning of the sample (the IFF header being read as audio data), before playing as normal (as 8SVX is essentially just a header on raw PCM, it so happened that the improper conversion sounds right to an untrained ear.)

You can get the original files here: http://aminet.net/mods/inst
